I got a regulator anyway. I was reading online and a guy said he always keeps one in his camper in case it breaks. It would suck if you were on day one of camping and that broke. Might be hard to find depending on where you are.
Here are my thoughts on spare parts
I used to carry lots of spares for just about everything as we camp in the backwoods, hours from anywhere that might have parts.
And invariably when I actually needed a part, either I didn't have exactly what I needed, or the part was now so old (like the diaphragm in a regulator or pump) that it was also no good.
So I stopped carrying all those extra 'just in case' parts. I have lots more room in storage for other good junk. I do carry fasteners and lots of tools.
And honestly, every time we have had an equipment failure while in the backwoods, we have always managed a work around, so didn't have to cut a trip short.
